My birthday is coming up, so in the hope of getting a few gifts, I signed up for several blog candies!

Check them out :
For this first one, Judy is celebrating her 10,000th hit. I have to nominate someone who has helped or encourage me in some way. I am nominating my friend Metz.

Naomi is also celebrating her 10,000th hit!

Bev in the UK has a blogoversary on the exact day of my birthday, the 23rd! Happy birth/blog day!

Ro Bruhn, who lives in Australia (sigh of envy) recently turned or will soon turn 60 and is hosting a blog candy to celebrate. Happy birthday to us, Ro!

There's another candy over at My Cardz Cool paper, ink, stamp...

Also over at Everything paper crafts... I think I might start to hyperventilate!

Kath's blog also have a giveaway.

Lucky Jennie
went to Ranger U and got a few goodies that she is now giving away. Awesome!

I saw on a few blogs that people had all their blog candy entries in a side bar... Might be useful! ;-)

Make something everyday

I saw that in many blogs on the past months. So I decided to try it. Monday, I made my very first ATC. It's a playing card I had covered with mucho layers of gesso a month ago. I just stamped it with black Stazon, and painted it with my newest toys : Twinkling H2Os. I luff them!!

I also made 2 inchies, one yesterday, one today, but I didn't take pictures yet. One of them is covered with Crackle accents which is drying and crackling as we speak.

True colors... are beautiful like a rainbow...

Here's the circle I made and decided not to put on my card. Same ink, same stamp, except for the bonne fête which I put elsewhere on the final card. Now you know what the colors are supposed to be like. Can you see the wart-like bubbles?

Yesterday's card

I just noticed that the colors from my newest card are showing up wrong. They look like orange and green, but in fact, the card is a pale yellow and the circle is blue. It's a cell phone pic, so that might be the reason, or maybe the lighting was bad. If I get a chance to take a better picture, I will.

A new caaaarrrrrrrd!

I made this card today for my brother in law's birthday. I started with a white card base, applied distress ink in Scattered straw over the front and sprayed with water. Then I stamped the text in black chalk ink, covered in Faded jeans Distress ink immediately so it would smudge the ink a bit and sprayed with water.

At first, I tried to cover the circle with Crackle accents but it was taking way too much time. So I just applied it everywhere unevenly and decided to dry it with my heat gun. That was the fun part. The Crackle accent started to boil!! It formed nice little bubbles over the surface and they dried as is. No crackles though. I'm still unsure if I like it or not... :-D So anyway, I made another one and skipped the Crackle accents. I finished my card with 2 strip of patterned paper and a chipboard. I applied a bit of dark brown chalk ink on the chipboard.

This card was made with this week's sketch from Card positioning systems.
